I posted on asiaone forums and most of the replies told me to stay away and called me FT.


You just learned your first cultural lesson. Xenophobia.

Hey Jeremy,

Why don't you tell us a bit about your background? You mentioned that you are half Singaporean, but you don't seem to have absorbed much from your Singaporean family. Your profile shows your location as Singapore, but you mentioned that you will be moving here next year. So are you still in the USA at the moment? Just curious...
Be careful what you wish for
